Brown bin collection

Postby Sallyann » Wed Feb 15, 2012 3:47 pm

And if you do pay it you get a nice sticker to stick on your wheely bin to say you've paid.. how long before they get nicked off and stuck on somebody else' bin?

Well, it won't bother me or people in our area because we've never had one! Whenever I've asked about them I've always been told they didn't know when we'd be getting them, yet we've always paid the same council tax as everyone else. Not a fair system right from the start!!!

Garden waste collection as never been a statutory obligation of any council and Mansfield council started this in ( i think) about 2005 as an extra service. It has, though, proved very expensive to run and in this economic climate is proving a little too much to continue as a free service.

With this charge being implemented, it is being rolled out to everybody in the area and year round, though i don't think this is needed.

Pesonally, i think 50p per week is worth having the waste collected, it would cost more than this to drive to the tip.

If anyone wants to pay me £25 I will act as a bin wagon and collect your trimmings and take them to the tip. :lol:

I never have much garden rubbish and what bit I can't compost, goes in my green bin and I'll continue to do exactly the same.

The scheme will now run for a full 12 months instead of from March to November.
Will the brown bins be emptied every two weeks, or will it be a weekly collection?
I can see a return to the times when there were bags of garden waste being dumped in lay bys, at the bottom of Wood Hill here in Meden Vale, and in the edge of the Woods at Church Warsop.
People have to get rid of this rubbish somewhere, and if the Council won't allow it to be put in the green bin, and the people are refusing to pay an extra £25, then it has to go somewhere, and its usually at the side of the road.
People make me sick when I see rubbish dumped around Budby and up the Wood side at Church Warsop, as its obvious these people have cars, so why don't they drive to Warsop and take it to the dump?
It must be nearer than driving to Budby, or the Wood Side!

Tut tut tut Caz.....The leaflet that was left in my green bin clearly states the following "Please note that garden waste cannot be placed in your green refuse bin"
I can see you getting your legs slapped, and being put on the naughty step when the Council's Garden Gestapo examine your green bin! :lol:

Nope! I've always been told that we can put a small amount of garden waste in our green bins. Nobody's ever told me any different! So I'm not changing!!!

When did you get that leaflet? Is it something you've had regarding brown bins being charged for? If so I suspect they've changed their policy so that people pay the £25. :o

Caz, the leaflet was placed in the lid after it had been emptied.
I'm sure we were allowed a small amount of grass cuttings etc in the green bin, but it now states that garden waste cannot be put in the green bin.

You mean you got a leaflet when the green bin was emptied today because I didn't get one! I haven't been asked if I'd like a brown bin either. Not that I want one now. If they wouldn't give me one when they were free, I'm not havining one now you have to pay! :roll:

I haven't seen that leaflet either. I have a brown bin, but have not received any notification of a £25 fee - where has that piece of information come from?
